CIao! This dish came about in the interest of doing something quickly. The result: wow! So good. I love easy and I love so good. Two of the best things that can go together.
1 bunch of asparagus, trimmed of woody ends & rinsed
10-12 mushrooms or 8 ounces mushrooms, rinsed, stems trimmed, quartered
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated parmesan
olive oil for drizzling
salt & pepper to taste
Line a sheet pan with foil. Drizzle a thin film of olive oil. Spread out asparagus in one layer, lined up. Toss the cut mushrooms around the edges. Season all with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, mix together the breadcrumb and cheese. Drizzle a little olive oil to moisten slightly. Season with salt & pepper.
Sprinkle breadcrumb mixture lightly over asparagus. Drizzle a little more olive oil over all. Roast in 400 degree oven until crumbs are golden and vegetables are cooked — about 15 minutes.
